Plain of Jars, Laos on a Stormy Day

Stormy Day on the Plain of Jars in Laos

Stormy Day on the Plain of Jars in Laos

The Plain of Jars in Xieng Khouang province in Central Laos remains a mystery to today. No one has been able to determine whether the jars, dated from the Iron Age, were for storage, burial chambers or something else. The day on the plains started out wet, windy and cold, but eventually a little blue sky broke though and gave exploring the plains a kind of eerie feel.

I was really itching to try out my new Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L ll USM Zoom Lens and the Plain of Jars really turned out to be a great subject. That thing really does shoot w-i-d-e-.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
